♪ you and me ♪ i want you to know ♪ rob: good morning, you are watching "fox and friends" first on thursday morning. heather: thank you for starting your day with us, great to have you with us as always. it is the biggest change in 50 years, donald trump unveiling his new plan to cut legal immigration in half. todd: aiming to raise american wages and protect jobs. >> reporter: a merit-based immigration system called the most significant reform in half a century senators cotten and perdue, reform american immigration system for the economy or raise back in february. donald trump gave it his standing approval in the
roosevelt room yesterday. >> the raise acts will increase wages and save taxpayers billions and billions of dollars. it will do this by changing the way the united states issues green cards to nationals from other countries. >> it would cut the number of green cards in half, 1 million a year to 500,000 x 2027. a skills-based system like canada or australia making america more competitive, raise wages for american workers and create jobs. >> there is no doubt people who come here who are unskilled or low skilled impact the wages of americans whether their ancestors came over on the mayflower or they just took the oath
of citizenship they are competing for those jobs. >> nancy pelosi saying, quote, from the start donald trump has pushed a hateful anti-immigrant
instills fear in our communities, weakens hour nation and dishonors our values. the bill faces an uphill battle in filibuster. it will need 60 votes to starting debate. it may be a tall order. we can expect donald trump to talk a lot about it tonight when he visits huntington, west virginia for a rally. heather: donald trump talking about a merit-based green card system spiking a heated debate at the white house between jim acosta and stephen miller. >> the notions they have to learn english before they get to the united states, we bring people just from great britain and australia? >> i am shocked that your statement is that you think only people from great britain and australia with no english.
this is an amazing moment that you think only people from great britain or australia would speak english is so insulting to millions of hard-working immigrants who do speak english from all over the world, have you honestly never met an immigrant from another country who spoke english outside great britain or australia? it shows your cosmopolitan bias. >> reacting to the heated exchange conservative commentator mark stein is quick to point out the hypocrisy behind the backlash. >> what jim acosta is complaining about is trump wants to move to a canadian style immigration policy. these are the same people wetting their knickers over justin trudeau on the cover of rolling stone saying why can't we have a dreamboat president like the canadian prime minister and trump saying i will meet you half way, let's start with canadian immigration policy and
justin trudeau is this white supremacist and trump is trashing america's immigration policy to turn himself into a ku klux klan moose hunter like canada. this is ridiculous. >> russia firing back, new sanctions into law calling it a full-scale trade war. legislation punishes moscow for election interference and shift the president's ability to be sanctions and imposes harsher sanctions on iran and north korea. donald trump giving it the green light but calling it, quote, seriously flawed. the russian government saying this and all hope for improving relations with the us. heather: we now know two american soldiers i did and four injured following an attack on a nato convoy in afghanistan. the unidentified army troops coming under fire in the kandahar province, the home of the taliban.
a homicide bomber in a pickup truck setting off the explosion as the convoy returned to base from a mission. nine us troops have been killed in afghanistan so far just this year. kim jung un should not be sleeping easy at night, that is the word from general hr mc master, he says the whole world against the north korean dictator after his regime tested another missile last week. >> he has the whole world against him. he is isolated on this. there has been no aggression from the united states, south korea, any of our allies. >> the state department announcing a travel plan starting september 1st, exemptions could apply to certain groups of people like journalist and humanitarian workers. >> a second bombing from
smoldering rubble after a gas explosion the most of the school in minneapolis. there is the scene, just terrific, the blast happening in the utility area leveling part of the building and setting it on fire, 6 people hurt, none of them are children. we are learning more about the victims, john carlson, 81-year-old janitor went to the school as a child, learned a school receptionist was engaged to be married. that is under investigation but officials believe contractors may have ruptured a gas line. 42 people, mostly kids rushed to the hospital after a major chemical leak, hazmat teams rushing into the center in durham, north carolina after reports of a strong chemical smell. >> coughing, choking, i felt lightheaded, my throat hurting. >> fire officials believe the leak involving disinfecting pool chemicals is the result of a mechanical issue, 6 children left seriously hurt, that is now closed as the investigation continues. heather: an entire town forced
to evacuate after a train derailed. a train car full of propane and molten sulfur careening off the tracks, this was in the middle of a pennsylvania neighborhood. the blast captured on this home security camera. the csx freight train was traveling from chicago to new york when it crashed southeast of pittsburgh but. no one was injured. another mishap at a county fair. we keep hearing about these things with a mechanical malfunction stranding three men on a bungee ride in california. the cage carries riders to the top and stalled. one rider already jumped ending up stuck upside down for nearly three minutes, upside down and they were all able to repel to safety to the ground, this just one week after a man was killed. >> we are about to hit fair

remain hot into the weekend with temperatures in the 90s, 100 ° range. we heard the report overnight that a lot of these places don't have air conditioning in the northwest so the heat will be a big story especially into the weekend. we have not had a lot of relief across the west. heather: thank you. the secret service needs drones to protect the president was according to white house documents the agency will test a small unmanned aircraft during the president's visit to his golf club in new jersey this month. it is part of their effort to find new ways to provide necessary protection to the president. >> republicans racing to go, raising $75 million and donald trump's for 6 months in office. the republican national committee fundraising numbers double the amount democrats raised during barack obama's for 6 months according to abc. the rnc attribute in the numbers
to the president's appeal with his base. the left is losing money they are preparing for 2018 by scrambling to come up with an obamacare fix after republicans failed to pass a skinny repeal of obamacare, democrats sharing some of their proposals in september, the health committee will start hearing about how to fix the failing health care system. we are not done with it yet. >> they are still dealing with the 2016 election, including brand-new homea aberdeen emails showing pay for play action going on and not only that but 91 emails and remember hillary clinton said she released all of them. >> this is not all and what is interesting to me about all of this is you never hear about this in the mainstream media. they spent countless hours of their broadcasts on trump and russia yet this is a serious -- secretary of state at the time
compromising potential national security. >> pretty irrefutable. take a look at this one example if we can bring up the full-screen between -- craig says it would mean a lot to me if you could help or advice on a personnel situation for a dear friend. hums of a response we love, the name was retracted, that person, looking into this asap and there are similar emails back and forth repeatedly. >> thompson of judicial watch has to say about all this and what should happen potentially. >> despite what the fbi director said it is not legal, they were mishandling classified information and if you are operating a system regularly receiving and sending classified information in a nonsecure way you are subject to prosecution and you would have been if you weren't hillary clinton. losing an election is not a get out of jail free card.
emails like this revive the clinton criminal investigation, handling classified information, paid to play and other violations. >> there was another blatant example where there was a telecom executives in puerto rico who donated $1 million to the clinton library and he asked through email that a certain person be named us ambassador to puerto rico. >> 12 minutes after the hour, the naacp is not backing down. the group is doubling down on their travel warning to the state of missouri. >> getting the last word, wait until you hear about james comey's multimillion dollar book deal. we knew that was coming. >> i paid $10 for a pack of 3 but he wants $30 for just one. we will explain when we come back. ♪ do you want to say no ♪

you pronounced my name correctly. what this shows, just another thing the american people don't really need. the epic failure of the repeal of obamacare, we need to level with the american people, we need to be truthful, we need to be thoughtful and strategic. immigration is of enormous importance in the agenda that should always be there but we have to proceed with caution, strategic alliances with members of congress. republicans and democrats, a comprehensive bill, to imitate canada and have a merit based, who is qualified and who is not, who is deciding? let's learn from the canadians, they have trouble because you have to figure out her industry,
we need both. we need low skill and high skilled. todd: you used the word strategic. isn't it a strategic way to help the american worker and ease wages? >> everybody is in favor of the american worker including the hispanic american worker, but i believe, i don't know if jenny will agree with me, the real underlining reason for this law is fear. there is great fear in the base and the trump administration. but the forces of assimilation, the anglo-american agenda is in danger and people like her are threats. assimilation is a keyword said yesterday by one of the senators, donald trump pronounced it assimilation is a very important word we need to bring out and discuss. assimilation and there is fear because the melting pot is not
working the way it has to, the forces of assimilation are fatigued. the administration wants to build a wall around the country. i am not saying i agree with in 1965 law which is the one that allowed 50 million people in the last 50 years to come into the country, 70% of them -- needs to be changed and bring more people, more quality work to the economy. immigration is a very complex issue and the administration is doing it little by little. heather: we have a full screen with a little more nuts and bolts of this. it cuts green cards in half, priority to those highly skilled immigrants. the goal to make america more competitive, raise wages and create more jobs. from my position in studio these
seem like logical ways to advance america and advance american workers going forward. you have individuals that help provide economic stability and don't have those dreams on welfare, 50% of those individuals that are immigrants -- >> that is not true. and i want to go to elvira's point. jobs, there are a lot of jobs to be filled. if you talk to anyone. and they rely on low skill -- todd: we are up against a heartbreak, we will be right back. ♪
